(KANSAS CITY, MO) - Zack Greinke threw five shutout innings for the win and Joakim Soria survived a rough ninth inning to get the save as the Kansas City Royals beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2.

The Royals jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first on RBI hits from Mark Teahen, Billy Butler and Alberto Callaspo.

Mike Jacobs made it 4-0 in the fourth with his first home run of the season. Cleveland would not score until the ninth when Shin-Soo Choo had an RBI single and Asdrubal Cabrera would score on a wild pitch from Soria. Soria managed to get Johnny Peralta to strike out looking to end the game and pick up his fourth save.

The Indians drop to 1-6 on the season.
